## Basic Math: Number Patterns I

*Basic Math* is taught by Murray Siegel of Marietta, Georgia. Dr. Siegel holds his doctorate in Mathematics Education, and has taught math since 1974. He received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching, is designated as a Master Teacher by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and was named by Kentucky Educational Television as the "Best Math Teacher in America".

Why are students not embarrassed when they say, "I can't do math"? You rarely hear from a high school student, that "I can't do history" or "I can't do English", because they can't read. Why do we accept that some students just don't have the aptitude for math, while we assume that everyone has the aptitude to read?

In Dr. Siegel's eyes, if you can't "do math" you should be just as embarrassed as someone who cannot read. Now, there's no need to be embarrassed anymore. This series is the easiest way to become mathematically literate.

Studying number patterns is important for two reasons. First, they help one better understand the concepts of arithmetic and provide a basis for understanding the concepts of more complex mathematics (algebra, trigonometry, calculus). Second, pattern recognition is a useful problem-solving skill, both in mathematics and in real-world situations.

Patterns involving odd and even numbers are investigated. Patterns in multiples of certain numbers lead to an understanding of divisibility rules. Sequences are introduced to heighten sensitivity to patterns and the concept of function is introduced using patterns of number pairs.
